Hawthorn [May. 14th, 2019|06:12 pm]
Tony Grist
The hawthorn is in bloom all over Sussex- in lanes, by roads, in gardens, on the hills- and there's just so much of it. Here's a particularly windswept tree above the village of Telscombe in the heart of the South Downs.



The name of the hill is Telscombe Tye. Turn round, climb a few paces to the brow of it, and there's the sea.

Definitely. I use to go there often when I lived in Saltdean.

What a lovely view and wind-swept tree! Our countryside is yellowing out now as summer is approaching and we will have no rain from now until the autumn. The winter wheat is almost ready for harvest.

I imagine there's rain on the way. There almost always is in Britain.

The South Downs are the landscape I love the best.

Oh, that's gorgeous!

The may blossom seems particularly wonderful this year. Maybe it's the sunshine...

It does, doesn't it. And there are just so many hawthorn trees in Sussex.

I noticed a hawthorn while were out yesterday that was absolutely thick with white blossom. We also heard our first cuckoo. I'm sure they've been here for a little while, but you seem to have to get up into the hills to hear them.
